Hello! My name is Dr. Atiya Nathan and I'm thrilled that you have found my page! The decision to seek therapy is a decision that does not always come easy. Please know that your decision shows your commitment to healing and I commend you for taking this first step. Go, you!
I won't bore you with a lot of details about myself so I will try to keep this short. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is dually licensed in Mississippi and Virginia. As a military spouse with lived experience on stress and transitioning, I enjoy working with people who feel the strain of everyday life and helping them to seek peace healing. I see a variety of clients who have experienced physical or emotional abuse, anxiety, depression, difficulties managing stress and workplace expectations, issues with self-esteem, goal-setting and even parenting issues.
I'm a Kentucky "gal" and I graduated from the University of Louisville where I earned a B.A. in Communication (2004), and a M.S. in Social Work. In 2019 I graduated with my doctorate in Education with a focus on Character Education from Regent University (Virginia). Finally, I am a Clinically Certified Anxiety Treatment Professional.
My counseling style is interactive and compassionate. I am a strength-based therapist; I love helping you to see your best self. Additionally, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused techniques. My favorite part of counseling is working alongside you as you march towards healing and peace and seeing your transition. My career as a Licensed Therapist is a humbling one and one that brings me great joy. I see it as a calling and not work.
